The BINE Information Service ...

... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

Innovative local heating solution in Ludwigsburg

Consolidating heating networks in existing urban districts while also connecting areas with a low heat density is particularly ambitious from an economic point of view. The town of Ludwigsburg is taking exactly this route. Here, an existing heating network is being expanded and in future will supply both the district of Sonnenberg and the Grünbühl housing estate, which is badly in need of refurbishment. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Local heating network combines new-build schemes with existing district” (04/2015) presents the district energy concept with its two components – energy-optimised construction and efficient heating provision. Based on the example of Ludwigsburg, methods and tools have been developed and tested that can be transferred to other cities with a comparable structure.  more...

Heating residential buildings with thermal heat pumps

For a long time, thermal heat pumps were generally considered too large to cover the relatively low heating requirements of single- and multi-family homes efficiently. Newly developed gas adsorption heating devices can now change that. They have been developed specifically for this application. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Heating with gas adsorption heat pumps“ (03/2015) presents one of the new devices. This combines condensing boiler technology with a zeolite/water-based thermal heat pump module.  more...

Tenants influence efficiency of refurbishments

With refurbishments the actual consumption frequently exceeds the requirement values calculated in advance. Scientists are examining in detail what causes this “rebound effect” in a housing estate in Karlsruhe. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Taking user behaviour into account with refurbishments” (02/2015) describes the initial results of the resident surveys and the technical cause analysis.  more...

Pulling crystals for semiconductor technology

Crystalline semiconductor components form the core of many modern communication technologies such as computers and mobile phones. They are produced during a multi-day pulling process that uses considerable energy. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Efficient production of monocrystalline semiconductors” (01/2015) presents a new method for producing gallium arsenide crystals. Instead of growing individual crystals as was previously the case, nine crystals are now grown in parallel from the melt. This reduces the specific energy consumption for the production by two thirds.  more...
